Update 1/13/2009

Folks,

I know I said that I would be back on 1/2/2009, but due to hard times in my life that will not be possible.

I'm going through very hard times in my life rite now and rom cooking has to come in second place for now.

The few months off from rom cooking did make me realize the most important things in my life.

I love cooking roms since I feel that my roms some how or another make a difference in peoples lives.

That means a lot to me but then again it's just a hobby and I have a real job and life that I must take care of first.

I've fallen behind on my tech certs in the past year since my mind and time was spent on cooking roms instead of updating or obtaining new certs.

Now I have to spend the next six months trying to catch up on the things that I've missed or have fallend behind one.

This is not a good bye, but a delay, I will be back once I've completed my CSSP.

===========================

Folks,

I no longer own a wing/herald but will continue my work until this version has been completed and all major bugs have been resolved.
To be on the safe side, please make sure your device is HARD-SPL before flashing any of my upcoming upates.

The FAQ will cover how to Flash, HARD-SPL and etc your device.

Thanks again for your support,

=======================

I'm currently on vaction and plan to come back after 01/02/2008.
Hang tight folks, I did not forget about you, just taking some time off.

Please continue to help each other out in the mean time.

Happy Thanks Giving, Merry Christmas and New Years in advance..

FAQ
FAQ Section:

Read everything in this section before downloading the roms and flashing.

If you don't understand it, read it again and again until you understand.

Once your doned flashing your device double check back here again to configure your device.

I will not reply to any subjects already covered in this section.

I'm not trying to be rude, I'm just very busy with finishing up this project and also working on other projects.


Back up your phone before downloading and flashing this rom... I do not want anybody to loose their data due to flashing this rom, as the rom will erase all of your data...

How To Flash Rom

HERALD-USPL-beta3 - posted by tiksister - rapidshare

How-To Flash the HERALD-USPL-beta3:

Download and extract both files.
Place the extracted OTP v7.1.nbh into the Herald-uspl-beta3/RUU folder.
Move the entire Herald-uspl-beta3 folder to the root of the c:\.
Follow the simple readme file.

Break down of how to flash this rom:

Then follow these steps:

II. How do I flash an NBH file?

a. USPL

Step 1. Download Herald-USPL-Beta3. http://www.megaupload.com/?d=A4N36HLO

Step 2. UnZIP the file into a folder on your Desktop. Let's call it "MyFirstROM" for simplicity's sake. Notice that there is a folder called RUU within this folder now. Keep that in mind.

Step 3. Download your NBH file and unZIP or unRAR it into that RUU folder. Make sure that that NBH file ends up in the RUU folder, not within a folder inside the RUU folder.

Step 4. Place your phone into flightmode.

Step 5. Go back to the MyFirstROM folder and then run USPL.exe

Step 6. Follow the directions on the screen. EXACTLY.

* Your screen on your cell phone will go white around the 75% part of the "second step" now.
* ActiveSync will LOOSE its connection.

Step 7. One step 3 on that black window, the RUU flasher will pop up. Just follow the steps.

That's it. :) Welcome to the flasher's world.

Instructions by Ivanmmj

===================================

If your device is already HARD-SPL read the following link before flashing.

HARD-SPL

======================

Disable Random Access and Enable Scrolling

With random access you must do the following to enable contact scrolling.

Click on the contacts button at the lower right hand side of the screen.
Click on the Menu button
Click on Options
Uncheck "Show alphabetical index
Click on the ok button to exit

Now I know the following will sound strange but it will enable scrolling in the contact menu.

Repeat the following steps again, and the random acess bar on the right handside will go away and scrolling will work again.

Click on the Menu button
Click on Options
Uncheck "Show alphabetical index
Click on the ok button to exit

If you want to enable random access, just go back and uncheck the "Show alphabetical index"

======================

How to turn off QuickMenu

/Start/QuickMenu/Exit

It will prompt you with "Exit QuickMenu?

Choose yes and it will not startup again even after a reboot.

Things to do after flashing your device:

Network Wizard

Go to \Start\Settings\Connections\Network Wizard

Choose your location and provider, do not reset the device when prompted.

Connections

Go to \Start\Settings\Connections\Connections

Once completed save and exit

Video on how to setup your device after flashing

=======================

Soft Keys

The calendar and contacts keys can be changed with the following steps.

/Settings/soft keys

Use this setting feature to change to what every programs you want.

========================

Show CIM contacts

By default it has been disabled so your CIM contacts will not display, use the following reg hacks to enable it.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Phone]
"ShowSIM"=dword:00000001

=========================

Show clock instead of battery

If you want to show the clock instead of the battery or the other way around, use the following reg hack.

Clock

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Shell]
"ShowTitleBarClock"=dword:0

Change the current dword:0 to 1.

Battery

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Shell]
"ShowTitleBarClock"=dword:1

Change the current dword:1 to 0.

==========================

M2DC

Just tried the M2DC theme manager on 7.3 Std, with a renamed .zip file to .m2dct file (specifically the KnobiSkin from the M2D skin thread).

First time, it locked up. M2DC continued with spinning icon until I forced a reboot. Touchflo was off after reboot, and after enabling it everything appeared to be the same.

Second attempt, I disabled Touchflo from today before applying the new theme. Got the "Applying Theme" prompt. After M2DC closed, I reactivated touchflow and new theme was applied.

Simple instruction for use of M2DC Themes on OTP 7.3:
Find a skin you like, download the zip file (not the cab),
Rename file to .m2dct,
Copy new file to the themes directory of the M2DC install directory,
Disable touchflo in Today settings
Start M2DC,
Go to themes tab (the first time it will back up the default theme),
Click the new theme then apply,
Restart touchflo.

Alternate for creating themes from skin CABs:
Run M2DC first, let it make the DefaultThemeBackup.m2dct file, Close M2DC.
Run the CAB skin of choice.
Rename DefaultThemeBackup.m2dct to OriginalTheme.m2dct (or anything else with same extension).
Rerun M2DC. It will detect no DefaultThemeBackup.m2dct and will ask to back up again. Let it make new backup. Close M2DC.
Rename new file to the name of the new theme.
Repeat for each skin CAB you wish to convert to m2dc theme file.

Note: The M2DCT files can be large (over 3Mb, 660 files backed up). Best to do this only if M2DC is installed on a large Storage card.

Note 2: Several times M2DC appeared to freeze when applying or backing up themes. It looks like it has problems if touchflo is not off prior to running. It does try to deactivate touchFlo then reactivate when done, but it doesn't appear to work flawlessly yet. It is better to deactivate the Today plugin before running M2DC on this ROM build.

Note 3: New mods to theme support in M2DC released today (Sept 30)

You don't want touchflo?

Or do you mean 2D, since touchflo is required for scrolling.

There is a lite version without 2D and it's in the mirror folder provided by coburn_c.
